Kinki Kids member Tsuyoshi Domoto has been hospitalized for a week after experiencing sudden deafness.
Kinki Kids was supposed to make an appearance on TV Tokyo’s “Ongakusai 2017” broadcast on June 28. Domoto was not present for the recording.
Group mate Koichi Domoto explained that Domoto has experienced hearing loss and will be staying in the hospital for a week.
I’ve never been a fan of Kinki Kids, but this is horrible. It’s like a photographer losing his sight, or a chef losing his sense of taste. Or Tsunku losing his ability to sing. I really hope this doesn’t turn out to be a permanent condition for him.
